Welcome to the Coffey Cousins' Clearinghouse Website
Coffey Coat of Arms

This is a genealogy site created to assist researchers with their Coffey, Coffey, etc. ancestors.  This page and all attached pages were designed by and are the property of Jack K. Coffee. 

The Clearinghouse was the brainchild of Leonard N. Coffey (1930-1989) and began with newsletter number 1 in Jan., 1981.  That effort brought together a group of Coffey researchers who met for the first time in May of 1984 at Boone, Watauga Co., NC.  Since then the "reunions" have continue for 32 consecutive years.  The reunion organizers - all volunteers - attempt to arrange accommodations each year in a different state.  As a result, they have been held in states from Virginia to Oregon and many in between.  This group has no by-laws.  "Officers" are chosen so that some leadership is available to make decisions about the next reunion.  Typically, this group, very loosely referred to as "the board" expands yearly to include the person who hosted the most recent reunion.  The board typically consists of a president, a vice president, a treasurer, secretary and several other at large members.  Long time president Jeff Coffey of San Antonio, TX once referred to us as a "disorganized organization."
